The GCC Security Symposium

Security Symposium 2023

The GCC Security Symposium is back for its 7th year, and it’s bigger than ever!

In 2023, the Symposium will visit three GCC countries: the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, gathering over 400+ leading security decision-makers. When it comes to cyber security, we all have a role to play: attackers are increasingly circumventing technical controls and targeting account holders who inadvertently ‘open the door’ to attackers.

Aside from the overarching theme of ‘Sec rity is not complete without ‘U,’ the symposium will take a closer look at how leaders in BCM and Risk management are assisting companies in developing a strong business case for business continuity and crisis risk management. The conference will also bring together top leaders in crisis management, disaster recovery, cybersecurity, and business resilience.

The symposium provides an excellent opportunity to gain exceptional knowledge on how an agile BCM plan will increase your organization’s flexibility and agility. The event will include a powerful lineup of keynotes, presentations, workshops, and panel discussions, as well as an exhibition of top providers in the business continuity and resilience industry.

CISO Awards

The Cyber Sentinels CISO Awards will honor the hard taskmasters of security in digital enterprises for their unwavering dedication to their organization’s security infrastructure. The award honors the top CISOs who use technology to secure critical business information assets, reduce risk, and deliver business value. The award ceremony serves as a platform for them to showcase their accomplishments and share their expertise and knowledge.

Future Security Leaders Awards

As the threat landscape becomes more vulnerable by the day, there is no end to innovation and no limit to improvement in enterprise security solutions. The Cyber Sentinels Security Awards 2023 honor security vendors, VADs, System Integrators, and Resellers who have gone above and beyond in innovating their solutions and services for customers, redefining the term “value” in security offerings.

Business Continuity Management and Risk Champions Award

The BCM and Risk Champions Award recognize individuals or teams who have demonstrated exceptional skills and contributions in promoting and implementing BCM and risk management within their organization. The award seeks to raise awareness about the importance of risk management and BCM, as well as to recognize those who have made significant contributions in their field.

BCM is a proactive strategy for ensuring that critical business functions continue both during and after a disruption. It assists organizations in identifying potential risks and developing risk-mitigation strategies. Risk management entails identifying, assessing, and prioritizing risks, as well as developing strategies to effectively manage them.

Individuals or teams who have demonstrated leadership, innovation, and a commitment to promoting BCM and risk management within their organizations, resulting in improved resilience, preparedness, and successful recovery from disruptions, are recognized with the BCM and Risk Champions Award.

The three-day Conclave is designed for industry leaders to network, share innovation, and source the latest products as we navigate a new era in security technology. This annual meeting in Baku is a strong step towards the Global CISO Forum’s vision of providing a year-round platform for the security community to connect with end users, consultants, and technology buyers through multiple digital channels.
